The $99.99 price point on Sony’s new head set may have you somewhat hesitant to jump on board. With the average gaming headset going for $299, I, too, was a bit reluctant to make the purchase. Having owned a few Turtle Beach sets in the past, I went ahead and made the jump for the sleek design.
Finally announced to be coming this November, is the Urban Camouflage DUALSHOCK 3 wireless controller! I will definitely be picking this one up next time I need a dualshock.
Prodagen’s Flex-Fire system for the Playstation Move provides a gun-shaped bracket in which to mount the Move and Navigation controllers. Thus, the Flex-Fire is similar to Sony’s own Sharp Shooter battle rifle system, but Prodagen aims to ameliorate the Sony design in a number of ways. The most obvious difference is its aesthetics: The Flex-Fire is black and vicious, whereas the Sharp Shooter resembles yet another Nintendo Wii add-on, but one that is making a half-hearted effort to imitate a phaser rifle from Star Trek: The Next Generation (yes, from 1987). But the more important innovation of the Flex-Fire is its articulated barrel, which allows one to hold the rifle steady with one hand while turning its muzzle with another, increasing the speed with which one can adjust one’s aim. Read on to see what this means for your game.
As many of us who have been familiar with HD sources know, those HDMI cables are often pretty thick and heavy. They have to have a high enough data flow rate for HD sources to get said data to a television or AV receiver, without losing audio and video quality. It’s a wonder, then, how RedMere managed to come up with some seemingly basic technology to allow for the HDMI’s data cable to be so thin (think the thickness of standard earbud headphones), while still allowing for the standard 10.2Gb/s transfer rate.
Turns out, the connector that goes to the TV (or receiver) contains a self-powered chip that basically amplifies the signal. I assume it only works one way, so the HDMI cable has one end labeled for the TV and the other for the source. Me, I have a 7.1 audio receiver, so I connected my PS3 to that instead.
